On February 15, 2022, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), determined that it is in the national interest of the United States to temporarily permit the entry of certain individuals who were physically present in Ukraine as of February 10, 2022 without the requirement that they provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test result prior to boarding a flight to the United States or to complete the attestation at Section 1 of the Combined Passenger Disclosure Attestation to the United States of America form. This temporary change is currently scheduled to remain in place until April 1, 2022 and applies to the following groups of individuals:
- U.S. citizens;
- lawful permanent residents;
- noncitizens in possession of a valid U.S. immigrant visa; and,
- noncitizen nonimmigrants who are traveling with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident and possess valid travel documents allowing them to travel to the United States.
